I always have a difficult time shopping for men. Yet, I’ve managed tp round up my top picks for holiday gifts.
FOR THE MAN ABOUT TOWN-I love this rugged sturdy bag from Japanese Company,Superior Labor for J. Crew. It is the perfect bag for city life, for the gym, for yoga, for traveling. GIFT UPGRADE– Stuff the duffel with new gym clothes or cahsmere sweaters or DVDS and a portable DVd player. The possibilities are endless.
FOR THE CLASSIC GUY-A new wallet is a great old-fashioned gift. This one from Hermes is such a classic, yet pricey. Wallets can be found at all price points. One tip-wallets are very personal-take into consideration how many credit card slots there are-it makes a difference. GIFT UPGRADE– Fill the wallet with small gift cards to the recipient’s favorite stores or just a dollar bill. It’s considered bad luck to give the gift of an empty wallet.
FOR THE TECHIE-Small Electronics are always very popular gifts. I think the Kindle is great-I love it for traveling. Other ideas are IPods, Portable DVD players, FLIP video cameras, Digital Cameras, Video Games etc. GIFT UPGRADE-If the chosen electronic has downloadable media, go ahead and load it up with books and a NY TImes subscription for the Kindle and a great playlist for an IPod.
